Chaga (Inonotus obliquus)


Origin Siberia


Chaga mushrooms grow naturally on the bark of birch trees in northern Canada, Alaska, Siberia, Northern Europe, and Korea.


Chaga is best absorbed in hot water, alcohol, or fermented. If you’re using Chaga powder or tea bag, let it steep in hot water for 5 minutes before using it.

Traditional medicine in the Northern Hemisphere used Chaga Mushrooms to inhibit cancer progression, stimulate immunity, reduce inflammation, and liver protection.


In the lab, Chaga has been shown to be antitumor, anti-mutagenic, antiviral, antidiabetic, antioxidant, and analgesic (pain relief).

Animal studies demonstrated Chaga as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor which boosts acetylcholine for better learning and memory.


Another study showed Chaga is a potent antioxidant and scavenges free radicals.


Do not use Chaga Mushrooms if you’re on blood thinning medication, diabetes medication or if you have kidney disease.


Chaga is high in oxalates, which may prevent the absorption of some nutrients and can be toxic in high doses.
